In Atlantis

Hey people!
So like I said I'm in Atlanta. Things are going well and I'm enjoying having some time off for once! I have been sketching all kinds of things getting ready for the second Air-Heart story as well. I won't be able to post much while I'm down here so I'll make a big post with some of the sketches when I get back. Until then have fun!



Its that time of the week again!
This time around I decided to do my take on Robocop. I hear he might be getting a new movie treatment soon so I made my version a bit of an update. He's more organic, and much less bulky.
In Air-Heart news I'm almost done inking the first story. I only have a few pages to go. After that I'll be taking a bit of a hiatus as I head to Atlanta for a few days. When I come back, I'll be shading and lettering the pages, then its on to the next story!
To round things out this week I'd like to give a special shout out to my lovely lady, Mackenzee who has a huge job interview at The High Museum of Art tomorrow! All of the best of luck to her from Robocop and I! That's all for now folks. Catch you next time!

Spring Forward!

Well hello my bloggerts!
Spring is finally upon us here upstate. Its nice to finally get some sun! Its amazing how the weather can effect your mood. I know I always look forward to end of winter because I'm definitely a spring/summer kind of guy, hence this weeks image featuring Jynx and Meteor girl. Once again these characters are some older ones that I don't do much with at the moment. He's an alien, she's a super-powered teenager, needless to say they're in love.
I'm keeping pace with Air-Heart and I've still been learning a lot in the process. Other than that, the baseball season has started and that's always a treat in the Diaz household. Not only are we watching the games on TV, but its time for catch as well! I love being able to get outside once again. Make sure you get out there too and enjoy some sun!

Its a me, Mario!

Its Mario Time!
This week I was in a Mario mood. I've actually never drawn him before, so I thought I'd take a shot. I also decided I'd give a little respect to all of the poor goombas who have lost their lives to this jump-addicted plumber.
In Air-Heart news I'm still plugging away at the inks for the first story. Its going very good and I'm really excited about how the pages are turning out. I've been having a ton of fun working on the project and I'm really excited about getting started on the next adventure too. As I had mentioned previously the final book will consist of three or four 25-30 page adventures each, so there will be plenty of bang for your buck.
In working on these pages I've been learning a lot about the working process and, I've been discovering a lot of things that will come in handy as I continue with the next three stories for the book.
I'm also giving a lot of thought to having one of the four stories in each book be a little bit more comical and not necessarily focused on action and adventure. It would still be an Air-Heart story just maybe a bit of a breakaway from the regular "save the day" kind of story. Maybe something along the lines of Joey hanging out in the control tower alone for a couple of days and the kind of trouble he might get into there. I'm not sure yet, we'll see! That's it for this week, until next time.
